Let me add my voice to the chorus of those who remember this spot from childhood. So simple and perhaps obvious, yet so effective. I truly had not given it a moment's thought since the last time I saw it who-knows-how-many years ago, but as soon as I saw the link and title I immediately thought "Oh, anti-smoking". I think this spot might have influenced my dad to quit, which he did successfully almost 40 years ago. Heck, it should probably still be on TV today.

I was also about the age of the boy when I saw this as a kid. It definitely had an impact on my life. My memories of this commercial are quite vivid. If a commercial last this long in ones mind, then you know that it must have been well done and thought out. To those who produced this public awareness message, you did a fine job. Bravo!

I was probably as old as the kid in the PSA when it aired in the late '60s and early '70s! The music is distinctly memorable. This is probably why I never got interested in smoking!
